I am trying to connect my Laptop in a Sony TV to try to watch movies better. I am using a HDMI cable but no image appears in the TV screen.
My Laptop has a Debian Wheezy installed:
Linux rajej 3.2.0-4-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 3.2.51-1 i686 GNU/Linux
I don't know if it is relevant for this, but I am using the fvwm-crystal window manager (also tried this with GNOME before, but also didn't work).
The output of xrandr shows that the HDMI1 output is detected and connected:
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1366x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 194mm
1360x768 59.8 60.0
800x600 60.3 56.2
VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
HDMI1 connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 735mm x 420mm
1920x1080 25.0*+ 30.0
1280x720 50.0 60.0
DP1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
I am trying to generate the output by using the command below, but nothing happens, just a black screen with the text message in the TV: "1080i / 50..."
#xrandr --output HDMI1 --auto
This Laptop runs a dual boot with a Windows 7, and the HDMI runs correctly on Windows.
Anyone has any suggestions on this?
